I'm loving everything about the last 8 months or so, except one thing. I'm absolutely frozen all of the time, even all summer I was cold. I'd imagine it's a combination of the effect of surgery itself, the weird hormonal stuff leveling itself out, th

My nutritionist didn't seem to mind if I use chocolate protein shakes as a source of protein, but would like to see it limited to maybe 1 a day, getting the rest of my protein from food sources instead of powder. I agree and I only use protein shakes

Yesterday, while speaking with a coworker, another one walked up to me that works in a remote location from my office. I haven't seen this guy in a year, though we've emailed occasionally if he needed my assistance. He walked up to me and introduced

NSV first:

I had a great night playing beach volleyball last night after cycling to and from work and doing the yard work. It felt good, and I was able to dive, hop up, dive again, hop up, and dive again in one sequence (I swear the other team

I had my 3 month appointment with the clinic on Friday. The blood work showed all vitamin levels were great. The nurse did my vitals, all normal. the doc liked my progress a lot, said that the measurements and weight loss (71) are really good for th

I'm pretty excited that my wife and I are on a beach volleyball team together. Last week was our first game, and I haven't played in 25 years. I was a little bit concerned about it, but I've handled everything else pretty well so I thought I'd give i

Last weekend I decided to take down an old rotted out shed in the backyard. I ate breakfast (an egg, a piece of cheese, and a few whole wheat crackers) and went outside with my tools. It wasn't until suppertime that I realized I'd done what I had don

Last night I lost my workout buddy to a massive heart attack, suffered while he was at the gym doing the very thing that we were trying to decrease the odds of happening. In 2013, we started this journey and kept on track as best we could. Both of us

Ok, well there's a scale victory too, but this is about an NSV.

A couple of years ago, I lost my elderly uncle. We were close, and it affected me pretty badly. Usually stuff like death doesn't, if we're being honest here, but I miss him daily

Recently, I posted in the daily what's on your menu thread, and, according to the regular folks on this site, following the guidelines given me by my surgeon is not the correct way to do things. I'm taking in too many carbs, not enough protein, etc. d

Anybody use the crazy hot stuff? I don't mean Frank's or Sriracha (though Sriracha is a favourite of mine). I have some insanely hot stuff called "Flashbang", and it is nothing shy of liquid heat in the mouth. I've always been somewhat of a pepperhea
